Cheryl Charles Revisited (4)
Onto Side 2 of the 1980 Cheryl Charles Duo LP 'Rhapsody' now. Passing by a slightly stodgy medley of '633 Squadron', 'Dambusters' and 'Land Of Hope & Glory', we alight upon 'Club Rock', an uptempo party number which showcases the male member of the duo who may or may not be called Charles, it's not terribly clear.
The self-penned song must be drawn from their years of experience of life on the road, and has a winningly wobbly vocal, some interesting John Shuttleworth synth diversions and extraordinary lyrics ('sweat dripping from the drummer's neck, a hairy band, a funky set'). Marvellous.
